OLIVIA DE PRATO:
STREYA ALBUM RELEASE CONCERT
Olivia De Prato (co-founder and first violinist of the Mivos Quartet) performs works from her debut solo album, "Streya"
This concert celebrates the March 2, 2018 release of Olivia De Prato’s debut solo album, Streya, on New Focus Recordings. De Prato will perform the album in its entirety, plus additional works by guest artist Missy Mazzoli, who will join De Prato on keyboards and electronics. Three of the works were written in 2016 specifically for the album – Ned Rothenberg’s Percorso insolito, Victor Lowrie’s Streya, and Taylor Brook’s Wane – while Reiko Futing's tanz.tanz (2010) and Samson Young's Ageha.Tokyo (2008) have been prominent in De Prato’s solo repertoire. Missy Mazzoli's Vespers (2014) is a new version for violin and electronics from the original work written for Victoire.
De Prato says of the composers on the new album: “I would describe each of them as a multifaceted artist – each brings a wide range of artistic abilities and perspectives to their work. As performers, improvisers, visual artists, and scholars of non-western musical traditions, the composers on this album represent the richly eclectic variety of influences that fascinate me in new music.”
CD included with ticket purchase.
